Northern Group to Yahaya Bello: ‘Stop Hiding, Clear Your Name with EFCC’ 

EFCC Yahaya Bello

The Northern Ethnic Youth Group (NEYGA) has told former Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello to come out of hiding and clear his name with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over alleged diversion of N80 billion state fund.

NEYGA stated this on Friday in a statement through the spokesperson, Ibrahim Dan-Musa, noting that the former Governor cannot be above the law.

The group also urged Bello to decist from campaign of calumny and blackmail against EFCC, as he is not above the law.

Dan-Musa said Bello’s attempts to tarnish the reputation of the EFCC and its chairman are desperate moves to divert attention.

The group urged Bello to subject himself to investigation and answer necessary questions to clear his name from the allegations of fraud.

He condemned Bello for remaining secluded inside the Kogi State Government House to avoid investigation.

He said “Yahaya Bello is not above former Governors Fayose, Jolly Nyame, Dariye, Ramallan Yaro, and others who are undergoing investigations. Every Nigerian knows that Bello mismanaged state resources, and a day like this will eventually come.”

EFCC brought corruption charges against Bello shortly after the conclusion of his tenure and the removal of his legal immunity.

Bello, who served for eight years, handed over power to his successor, Usman Ododo, on January 27th.
